Evan King is the monster hunter character I introduced in my last Halloween pic, an aspiring Van Helsing-type who seems to always end up becoming the plaything of the monsters he hunts. Loona’s kind of a natural pairing for him, and I haven’t drawn her much at all outside of one commission where she’s mostly hidden. I dunno why, but I thought the idea of Loona toying with him with her feet was particularly funny, like an absurd way to end up helpless, but I hope y’all will enjoy getting to see a bit more of her as well as our first look at Evan without his hooded jacket.
So, every year I like to add one new monster character to my “Spookyverse” lineup. I was thinking over a few different ideas for what monster type to go with this year, when I had a parallel idea for a human character. So, meet Evan King, a would-be monster hunter. Evan wants really badly to hunt monsters, but it seems like whenever he tries he ends up failing in some way and played with by the monster instead. I think it’s a fun gimmick, but we’ll see how much he actually gets used. As for the monster he failed to defeat this time, our debuting character is Gillian Randwulf, our second werewolf character (though not related to Diego). Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
My Halloween pic for 2020 debuted the vampiress Cristina de Sange, a powerful countess-type vampire with several minions under her, similar to Lady Dimitrescu. She debuted with one of her thralls, Maria, but I always wanted to expand her brood with more members in later updates (similar to the witch coven characters in the same universe). So, here’s Felicia Drake, a cute pigtailed vampire with bright red hair. I hope to get around to adding more vampire ladies to this cast eventually, though we’ll see how things go.
I’d originally planned for the Bio pages for both of the clowns to go public in the year between last year’s Halloween and this one, but never really got around to it now.
Clyde’s the loli of the group, and the only one without a dick. When I first decided to make both Blinky and Clyde, when I thought about Clyde I immediately pictured Tear from “That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime”. I like the idea of her being the cute, quiet, nicest one of the group, but if you took off her mask you might see some Lovecraftian horror that’ll scar you for life, if you survive.
I mentioned in the Halloween special that I wanted to do bio pages for the clowns as a way to introduce all four of them, but I wanted to get Pinky and Inky’s bios out of the way first. So here is the bio for Pinky the Clown. Hopefully I’ll get around to Inky’s before too long, and then I can introduce the other two later!
So, the “Class Clowns” comic was originally going to be my public post on Halloween day, but I realized while I was working on it that I hadn’t really given a good view of Inky or Pinky outside of a few quick glances at their designs. So, I decided I would close the comic with this pic, which is done in the more traditional style I’ve done for Halloweens past (that is, a single image of the new monster character(s) with a text variant). This serves as the conclusion of the comic, and is the last time I plan to draw these four in this specific scene. Anyway, I hope you all like it!
So every year for Halloween I introduce a new character or two to my lineup of “Spookyverse” monsters. I’ve had a loose idea for these two characters for a while, now, and decided this was the year to introduce them. The taller vampiress here is Cristina de Sange, an ancient vampire with a castle and everything. The smaller one is sort of like her thrall, Maria Ashe. I really liked the idea of a statuesque, powerful vampire with a cute loli minion. There might be other vampire characters worked into the roster later, like how I added a new witch last year, but for now I think these two are enough. I hope y’all like them, and maybe I can work them into pics with some of the other Spookyverse characters later. I think either would be an interesting partner for Diego, for example, or maybe some of the other ladies.
